NATO refused Israel’s protection from Iran

MOSCOW, 2 Jun — RIA Novosti. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Der Spiegel said that NATO will not help Israel in the event of armed conflict with Iran.

As noted Stoltenberg, NATO cannot give Israel full security guarantees, since the country is not a member of the organization, although it remains a partner of the block.

NATO Secretary General stressed that the Alliance is not involved in the settlement process in the middle East.

“It’s not our job,” he said.

Stoltenberg acknowledged that among the members of the unit, there is disagreement regarding the nuclear deal with Iran. However, he added that all members of the organization concerned with the missile program of Iran and “terrorist groups”, which leads to instability in the region.

The aggravation of relations between Iran and Israel caused by a rocket-the nuclear program of Tehran and military assistance from the Islamic Republic to the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.

Also last month, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu said that air forces of Israel for several years resist Iranian aggression in the middle East. He also stressed that Israel’s unacceptable military presence of Iran in Syria.
